Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Plain sailing for Lambro at Thurles.

Ruby Walsh rides Lambro at Thurles this afternoon

Timeform's Irish team highlight three win selections for this afternoon's meeting at Thurles...

"Lambro meets Lastoftheleaders on 7 lb better terms this afternoon and, given he is expected to have come on for that outing, a bold bid looks on the cards...."

Dangan Daylight showed fair form on both her starts over hurdles last term, winning a maiden at Clonmel on the second occasion. However, as a former point winner her future was always going to lie over fences and after a bit of a mixed start, Dangan Daylight took her form to a whole new level when narrowly denied by Noras Fancy in a Grade 2 mares novice at this course last time. That effort sets a very clear standard in the opening mares' maiden chase and barring any mishaps Dangan Daylight is expected to get off the mark in this sphere with the minimum of fuss.

Lambro was a Grade 2 winner over hurdles, but he has proven to be even better over fences, winning twice and even giving Flemenstar something to think about when chasing him home at Naas last term. He made his handicap debut in a quite-valuable event at Punchestown last time on the back of a nine-month absence and, although he produced a creditable effort in finishing fourth to today's rival Lastoftheleaders, he ultimately shaped as if in need of the run and faded after the last. Lambro meets Lastoftheleaders on 7 lb better terms this afternoon and, given he is expected to have come on for that outing, a bold bid looks on the cards.

Edmundo had run well over fences off marks of 97 and 100 prior to taking advantage of his much lower hurdles mark in a conditionals' handicap at Navan last time, travelling smoothly and keeping on well to beat Whosaidso by just under three lengths. He still looks well treated under his revised mark of 88 in this sphere and looks capable of following up.
